Standard Hospital Charges

We know that paying for healthcare is a big concern for many and we are committed to providing you with as much information as possible so you can make informed decisions about your care, knowing in advance, what to expect in terms of cost.

Your out-of-pocket costs may depend on several factors including your insurance provider, your specific health benefits policy, expenses such as your deductible, co-insurance, co-payment and the limit of out-of-pocket expense requirements, as well as the services or procedures you receive which may or may not be covered. 

We wanted to let you know that a new rule requires hospitals to maintain and make available a list of their standard charges for items and services provided.  These standard charges do not reflect or represent how much you will have to pay, nor do they reflect the actual payment a hospital will receive for those items and services.   You can obtain this list of charges here. For more information, click here.

Please be aware that:

  1. Certain physician services (such as anesthesiology, pathology, radiology, or emergency) provided in the hospital are not included in the hospital’s charges and may be separately billable by the physician;
  2. Physicians who provide services in the hospital may or may not participate with the same health care plans as the hospital; and
  3. The prospective patient should check with the physician arranging for the hospital services to determine the health care plans in which the physician participates.
